Tree Builder Punch for Pals Paper Arts (PPA254)

Stampin' Up! tree builder punch birthday card by Mary Fish Stampin' Pretty

A simple white tree created with the new Stampin’ Up! Tree Builder Punch sets the stage for today’s birthday card.Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge Banner

My color combination was inspired by this week’s Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA254).  Feel free to substitute any of these colors for similar colors.  I opted to use new In Color Watermelon Wonder in place of retired Strawberry Slush.  Check out what the rest of the PPA Design Team created this week HERE!


  • A tiny Watermelon Wonder bird (also cropped with the Tree Builder Punch) makes a statement against the white tree.

  • The “happy birthday” sentiment is from Sprinkles of Life stamp set.  The additional images in the set coordinate with the Tree Builder Punch and may be seen below in my supply list.Stampin' Up! tree builder punch birthday card by Mary Fish Stampin' Pretty right
  • Feel good!  Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 to Ronald McDonald House for every Sprinkles of Life stamp set sold!

  1. I didn’t need the 12 x 12 sheet of Envelope Paper to make an envelope (previous post) but the remaining piece is long and skinny . . . perfect for the background of the card and envelope liner!

  2. Fabulous, Mary, only you would create a white tree with the WW bird…..really wonderful idea!

  3. I really like the crispness of white on white. Especcially effective with just the hint of colour of the bird. It’s something i’ll keep in mind the next time I make a card 😉

  4. Clean and fabulous card Mary, love the pop of red you added with that adorable little punched out bird. The panel of stripe Watermelon Wonder paper just ties the entire layout together beautifully.
    Thank you for sharing.
